Our conference will take place at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Dorsoduro, 3246, 30123 Venezia VE.
Founded in 1868, Ca' Foscari University was the first Italian institution of advanced education in Business and Economics. The original building is still found in the grand gothic palace Volta de Canal on the bend of the Grand Canal, in the heart of Venice.
You will have opportunity to visit historic Aula Barato (Aula Magna) overlooking the Grand Canal and offering a unique and impressive panorama.
